Event description

Description

Why did Hans Christian Andersen write The Little Mermaid? How did science interact with fairy tales in the 1800s? How has bodily difference appeared in these tales over the centuries, and what did the Brothers Grimm think of surgeons?

Join bestselling author Jen Campbell for a discussion on all of these things. Visitors will also have the chance to look around our exhibition; Rebuilding Bodies & Souls.

This talk is free thanks to funding received from the Heritage Lottery Fund but places are limited to please book in advance to avoid disappointment
